Favorite Quote:
"...To dance with my father again." ~Luther Van Dross


Remember when we would sit.
Just sit and talk.
Like there would never be an end.
An end to your existence.

I cant recall if we were very close.
By that, I mean really close.
I knew that we had a bond.
A special father- daughter bond.

I remember your smell.
Coffee and gasoline.
I used to cringe at the smell.
But, I miss it very much now.
I never thought that was even possible.

I never expected that you would be gone.
I don't think anyone did.
I didn't realize that you were so special.
Until you were gone.

I long to see your face again.
To feel your warm embrace.
To understand and take your advice.
But I will never get those chances.

I will forever remember the topic of our last conversation.
So short but oh so very sweet.
I don't remember every word you spoke.
Although I wish that I did.
But, I do know that it should not have been the end of your existence.

The inspiration behind this piece is the lose of my dad. I have been going through a very difficult time lately with the 3 year anniversary of his death coming up.
